I've changed a lot since I started hanging with Sonic, but I can't depend on him forever. I know I can do this by myself! Okay, Eggman! Bring it on!


Welcome to Game Kiwiís return to the Digital World in... Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth!

What is this game?
Itís a JRPG for the PSVita, PS4, and Nintendo Switch starring everybodyís favorite Japanese collection of creatures, the Digimon. I havenít played much of this before, but the battle system reminds me a lot of Final Fantasy X, so thatís a really good sign in my book. We're playing on PS4.

Who are you?
Game Kiwi is an internet in-joke turned into a real thing. This time Iíve got my girlfriend on second mic. Youíll know her voice if youíve been following GKís yearly Extra Life Streams, or our adventure streaming through all of the Kingdom Hearts series.

When will you release?
We plan on releasing videos once or twice a week on no specific day, depending on how much backlog we build up. More backlog means more episodes sooner.

Anything else?
This isnít Game Kiwiís first foray into Digimon games. If you missed it, check out our very first ever LP, Digimon World: Re-Digitized. Itís...showing its age, honestly. It was a different time, man.

Since it's a JRPG with random battles I'll probably cut out ones we record where nothing interesting is being said. I'll also do grinding off camera completely, so there shouldn't bee tooooo much of it past the first batch (1-5) of episodes. I just left it in those to give a general idea of how the game actually is.

I'll also have some user participation like the last Digimon LP. I'll be taking suggestions for evolution lines people want us to go down, as well as letting y'all name our mons, within reason.

:siren: Spoiler Rules: :siren:
Please donít. Both Reiko and I getting it for the first time (as may be other posters). Please donít ruin it for us. If you really really want to talk spoilers, thereís the Digimon General Thread for that, or you can PM me for evolution tips or things you want me to try and check out. If you absolutely have a burning need to talk spoilers, then blackbar tag them and any responses to spoiler comments. Donít go crazy with it though.

Episode 1 - Jack In to Digimon
Episode 2 - The One Where We Play the Game

Digimon World was the first Digimon game released and was basically an RPG with virtual pet raising wedged awkwardly in. It was pretty infamous for the fact that your Digimon, regardless of what it or where it was, would often stop everything to have to go to the toilet. This mechanic, despite not really being a thing in any of the games following (bar the Digimon World remake released around the same time as this), burned itself in the minds of those who played it.

Man, I played this back when it first released and honestly, as someone who hadn't touched Digimon period since, like, Frontier, I thought the game was amazing. Good luck with your LP, I hope you had as much of a blast as I did. Are we allowed to give you grinding advice or leveling advice? Some of the requirements to Digivolve certain mons can be a huge pain in the keester.

Episode 2 - The One Where We Play the Game

edit: i forgot that i also have the free dlc now, sooooo

:siren: NEW DIGIMON TO NAME :siren:

Agumon (Black) = Dinoir


Gabumon (Black) = Zebra


Agumon (Tai Yagami Costume)


Agumon (Hero Costume MALE & FEMALE) <- 2 names here


The last 3 will never evolve (and honestly probably won't get used) because they'll lose the costumes, but you can still name them!

"Hi Everybody!"
Cyber Sleuth is very easy to snap over your knee levelling-wise, and it's worth doing in moderation at least if you want to deep-dive into some of the better DNA Digivolutions and the like.

Digivolve your Hagurumon into Sukamon (it doubles XP earned naturally), and stick a Tactician USB (also doubles XP earned) on it. Several if you can, because they STACK. You'll want two Sukamons in the long run, so you can bounce them separately up to PlatinumSukamon at the Mega level, and for even more grossly-broken XP-earning as you stack more Tactician USB's into their three accessory slots.

You can get a Tactician USB early on from one of the tournaments, iirc.

The downside is your LP title will be very, very, wrong about the amount of poop it will wind up containing.

I was going to wait until Chapter 7 to say that, because that's when one of the best grinding spots becomes available, but yes, the above post is correct. Poop is extremely powerful in this game.

EDIT: I went and double checked the chapter since it's been years since I've played this game, and it actually unlocks in Chapter 4, not 7.

Having seen my roommate play through this game at points, no. Do not grind slower. I watched the man digivolve and de-digivolve the same thing NINE times over the course of several hours to get a late game mon.

Yeah, it seems game-wrecking but it's insanely useful for juggling a Digimon up and down its line in the span of a few minutes to get its affinity and stats up.

Also name the BlackGabuMon "Zebra".

nine is low, let me show you a suggested evolution path for a vaguely pvp ready endgame mon


DemiDevimon (Panic Wisp) > Kurisarimon > Cyberdramon (Venom Trap) > Veedramon > MetalTyrannomon (Ripping Net) > Tyrannomon (Acceleration Boost) > Megadramon > Greymon > Hackmon > PlatinumSukamon (Character Reversal) > Vademon > GoldNumemon (Texture Blow) > Armadillomon (Shock) > Ankylomon > Gomamon (Idle Bubble) > Frigimon > Monzaemon > Sakuyamon > (Restore, Final Heal and Status Barrier) > Silphymon > Hououmon (Safety Guard) > Piximon > Ophanimon (Perfect Revival and Final Aura) > Angewomon > Sunflowmon/Gatomon > Lilamon/Lillymon > Lotosmon (Support End) > LadyDevimon > Bakemon (Physical Drain) > Myotismon > Devimon > MetalGreymon (Blue) > WarGreymon (Attack Charge Field) > MetalGreymon/MetalGreymon (Blue) > Growlmon/Greymon (Blue) > Goblimon > Tsunomon > Veemon > Veedramon > AeroVeedramon > UlforceVeedramon (Speed Charge Field)


to paraphrase the spoilers it's an evolution chain 40 links long to make sure you get all the skills you'd want and end on what's probably the strongest mon. I love this game, and I'm glad to see someone LP it so more people can know about it, but man is the leveling in it borked as hell

I could have sworn the max number of moves known was less than eighteen, but it has been a year or so since I played.

TheFlyingLlama

20 is the max number of moves a single digimon can use. I'll also say that for actual in game poo poo you don't need anything anywhere near that comprehensive, and honestly just by using someone you leveled actually playing the game you'd likely have 3 or 4 of them anyways.

i'll also probably have a video doing poo poo to get a Top Mon just to show what it's like

Anything you've yo-yo'ed through a few digivolution lines is going to just crush everything it faces by endgame.

Oh also, the Digimon's Type takes a much higher precidence over the elemental matching.
